: you are reading the same headlines we are out of the russian defense ministry and from russian sources, first saying they would potentially be some assault on ukrainian forces who were holding out, albeit peacefully at the moment on the crimean peninsula. then we understand no such ultimatum has been issued. really, events down in the crimea which is in the southern part of this huge european country, let's not forget it's the second largest country by land mass in europe, with a 2300 kilometer border with russia. events are very fluid and really, no clear picture coming out. at the moment, we do know this government here in ukraine which is pro-western, is very defiant even though they are saying they are still looking for very diplomatic messages. that's despite the foreign minister of russia today being pretty aggressive, telling western powers not to back this government in ukraine. i spoke to the prime minister yatsenyuk today. i asked what's his message to lavrov and the russians. >> my message is that we will find a political and diplomatic solution despite the fact that russian
the threat or use of force. and that none of their weapons will ever be used against ukraine except in self-defense or otherwise in accordance with the charter of the united nations. that clearly hasn't happened now, even though putin claims he's potential acting to protect the russian populace. >> no, it hasn't, but then again, you know, seen from not just russia, but many ukrainance as well, what happened was not like what happened in egypt with the overthrow of commune im. yanukovych was a repulsive ruler in many ways, but he wasn't elected. a large part of the ukrainian parliament is being chased out of kiev, you know, the representatives of the east and south, the parties which supported yanukovych. so it is highly questionable whether this government in kiev does have any degree of democratic legitimately. that's why, quite rightly, the west has gotten a promise of new elections in may, but of course the question is how one can hold free and fair elections with nationalist militia in control of with you pant of the country and russian soldiers in control of another. >> finally, the west is cl

minister on tuesday. it's widely believed the current defense minister will run in the upcoming presidential elections. joining me now is david kirkpatrick. he is the cairo bureau chief of the "new york times." he wrote an in-depth investigative report on the ben gauzy attacks when christopher stevens was killed in september 2012. i'm pleased to have david kirkpatrick back at this table. welcome. >> it's good to be here. >> rose: you have been there and watched the arab spring wherever it is now unfold changing a region. >> yes i i was in egypt in time for the revolution there, i was there when khadafy fell. it's been breathtaking. >> rose: where is egypt today. >> it's very hard to know. as you mentioned, field marshall has likely to become the next president. he's the general who ousted egypt's first democratically elected president mohamed morsi of the muslim brother brotherh. he was embraced as a hero and he was promising stability when he ousted president morsi. right now, i think that promise looks very remote. most of the factors that contributed to the original upris
there are russian defense forces. kerry was god smacked. nbc's andrea mitchell told him putin said that. putin says there's an illegitimate government here in kiev. kerry says how can it be illegitimate when the parliament approved this government? putin says there are ant anti-semantic running in kiev. kerry says, i drove through kiev, i walked through kiev, how can that be the case, mr. putin? but let's look at the positive side of things. progress, kerry is going to be speaking to lavrov. nato and the russians will be speaking, as well. it's sluggish, but there is a ministerial level conversation going on. the russians maybe, despite mr. putin's comments about the illegitimatesy of this government, there was some progress there. but the hard proof is there are russian forces or pro russian forces, whatever you want to call it, on ukraine territory. talking about putin's speech yesterday, this is hard lined. it says the confessions of a mad adegreeson with a caricature of mr. putin. a humanitarian mission? and then we have a third bun referring to those shots and pictures of unarmed ukrainian air

and on their tvs, those are pro russian local forces of self-defense. president obama appearing at a function had this to say regarding putin's claim. >> there is a strong belief that russia's action is violating international law. i know president putin seems to have a different set of lawyers making a different set of interpretations, but i don't think that's fooling anybody. >> secretary of state john kerry who arrived in kiev also dispute putin's claim when he was asked about it by my colleague, andrea mitchell. >> it's clear that russia has been working hard to create a pretext for being able to invade further. russia has talked about russian-speaking minority citizens under siege. they're not. >> kerry talked about a meeting with the new government and protest leaders including former pro boxer klitchko. the package includes a $1 billion in loan guarantees. still, the question is how to interpret putin's remarks today. not only did he deny russian troops had invaded crimea, he said that should russia wish to do so, they have every legal right since they would be doing it at the request of t
failed with this policy that led us to where we are. i would renew the missile defense program in the czech republic and poland and probably have some nato exercises with particularly the bal baltic sta. obviously expand the magniski bill to target individuals that have to do with this, and the initial signals out of europe, the british and germans aren't encouraging sanctions. >> charlie: i do know that. do you think sanctions that were effective in iran would have the same kind of effect on vladimir putin? >> i think, first, i would try the magniski which targets individuals and their bank accounts and their ability to travel and all that. i would try that first. then, obviously, i would look at other areas. you know, throw them out of the g-8, of course. it should be the g-7. a number of other cosmetic kind of don't send our officials to the paralympics. but we have to understand what this guy is all about. he's an ogd kgb. in 2008, the debate i had with barack obama, i said at that time, watch russia and ukraine and, unfortunately, these many years later, i was correct. >>
of defense, were seen leaving the white house earlier this afternoon. joining me to catch us up is nbc news correspondent kristen welker. >> reporter: thanks for having me. there were high-level meeting at the white house. the national security team met here at the white house to discuss possible policy steps at that they may take in the future. president obama was not at that meeting i am told, but he was briefed by his national security adviser susan rice, as well as the rest of his national security team. as you pointed out, karen, we saw defense secretary chuck hagel leaving the wours early and dni chief james clapper as well as other officials. this comes on a very stern warning yesterday. he said to russia if they were to take military steps in ukraine, that there would be costs associated with that. so the big question is what will those costs be? what are they considering? one white house official telling nbc news that those costs could include a possible boycott of the g-8 summit. that is slated to happen in sochi, russia, the very same place where the olympics were held in june. >
. in this particular case, this technology has been demonstrated back in 2010. the department of defense work bircher --m called walter that was to fly for five --rs at high altar to allow themnd would to have internet in the parts of the world that do not. >> a drone that can provide internet access. we should think of it like a satellite? orbiting satellite that has the ability to maneuver within the band they want to to sell for the conductivity of communication. if you look at africa, those that skipped a generation of cell phones. they never put power lines or hard cable lines in the ground. now they have cell phone coverage. this is the exact same thing they will do with the internet, skip a generation of the internet and now go through low-flying orbital satellites that are called unmanned aircraft systems or drones. would this compare to what google has been focused on? both of the companies are more interested in more people using internet around the globe. >> what google is doing is they were looking at balloons that would fly at the higher altitudes that would allow them to again use it as
of the national defense council. and i spoke to one of the representatives of that council, deputy summer somer about the intentions of the russians. let's just listen in to what she thought. >> we understand that this is main goal of the russian army to -- ukrainian army to have its own country. but just now, we don't have any cases with -- where our on -- >> do you fear that there's going to be an escalation of the conflict area outside of crimea to, perhaps, eastern ukraine, for instance, which has a lot of russian support, we're told? >> so dangerous of escalation is very high. but ukrainian government try to keep the situation and our message for all ukrainian army to give the people. we understand that we are doing everything without armed forces. >> do you consider russian actions so far to be a declaration of war by russians on ukraine? >> yes. we can see the decision of the russian parliament and we can see act on the ukrainian territory in crimea. >> what they're saying here is the actions on the ground that have been a declaration of war. we've had a mobilization of regular forces, a
they declared on their own a unilateral air defense zone over thousands of miles in the pacific. this is a very dangerous precedent that's been setting. iraq was a disaster. this was an even lower precedent for military i7b9 ventionterven. putin has sort of outplayed us over the last decade. now germany gets 40% of its natural gas from russia. he knows that. he thinks the germans won't back sanctions. it is aj ah merkel, the german chancellor, who's saying we should not kick russia out of the g8. it's hurting him economically. it's isolating him. you don't give him the olympic games. you don't allow him in the g8. you hold him accountable. and i agree with steve, you have a strategy to isolate putin. putin is dangerous. putinism is dangerous. this rise rise of authoritarianism is something we need counter patiently, slowly, but consistently over time. >> steve, one of the problems in a situation like this is the ultimate action no one is willing to take. there is no one saying we should be willing to go to war with russia over this incursion. and once you eliminate getting into an actual shooti
has emboldened vladimir putin at this point. you also mentioned the missile defense shield in poland and the czech republic. i want to remind everybody what president obama said when he was caught on an open mike on this issue early in this presidency. we have the words up on the screen. he said after my election i will have more flexibility. and he said okay i'll take your message back to putin. >> you mentioned the first budget he had 10 years ago, that's when he took down poe portland'. we had a missile intercept base going in there. i talked to poland and said are you sure if we go along with this you won't pull the rug out from under us? and he did that in the first budget. all of our interceptors are on the east coast. now we realize iran will have that capability they are predicting by 2015 and a delivery system. so it's a level of danger, martha, that we have never been in before and we need to start rebuilding. it has got to be a wakeup call to the american people that we can't come up with the resources in places where we should. martha: last night bill o'reilly talked abou
is in brussels for a two-day meeting with nato defense chiefs. his goal, to insure that the other allies don't begin a run for the exits in afghanistan. nato's secretary-general issued his own warning. >> if there's no agreement, there will be no nato troops in afghanistan after 2014. >> yesterday's phone call was the first time that president obama had spoken to karzai since last june. >> it's unprecedented in war time for a war-time president not to engage in constant discourse with his principle ally. >> the chairman of theous armed services committee gave a scathing speech this week condemning president obama for remaining disengaged from afghanistan. >> it's incredible that the president has only talked about this war a handful of times. and people don't know what's going on, don't know what we have accomplished, don't know the successes that our troops have had. and i just think that is reprehensible. >> both scales and mckeon suggest the president's silence on afghanistan demonstrates he would actually prefer to leave at the end of the year. despite what his commanders want. general d
all because the department of defense refused to classify the assault as anything but workplace violence. now those soldiers being hit with more bad news. their live expenses are set to skyrocket. sergeant lunsford was shot seven times in that attack, not able to get the benefits he deserves and now this. how does this resonate with you? i'm talking about the proposed budget cuts and what it means to people like you? >> with the budget cuts that are coming down for our current service members, it is very detrimental to them. it's basically showing them they're not worth that much. in terms of war, this is like being a body being expendable, g.i. issue. it is sad because when we join the military they say we're family strong first as far as army component. with everyone else, it kind of makes you wonder is this a choice we really should make and that's a large because we do need to defend our standard of living in our country. >> quickly, 9/11 we had a different enemy than we had on september 10. the only thing we know is we're not ready to fight any battle let alone the one that
. that's really important. >> the thing thing is, it's just coming out the defense is apparently saying that pistorius, quote, sounds like a woman when he is screaming and that perhaps that is who this witness heard, that it was actually oscar pistorius screaming and not riva. >> got love a defense lawyer. i and they'll probably bring in experts, and the prosecution will say that's not what he sounds like. this is tried and front of a judge, not a jury. so they have to be careful of trying to say something that is really going to say to the judge, you're not being fair. i understand what you're doing for your client but you're not being fair. >> look for the judge to look at facts and law. >> that's different. because in america we do things in front of a jury, more emotional, flamboyant. >> not so much the prosecution. here they have to be wary of doing that in front of one judge, who does have two assessors who will help in the decision, but comes down to one judge to decide if it's a conviction, what the penalty would be, 25 mandatory minimum if it's murder. there's no death penalty
of the family of nations and also begin looking at redeploying the missile defense system. >> speaking of deployment, what's going on are -- going on with the russian troops, tphrad me putin ordered military exercises near the ukraine. sounds like he's pulling them back. exercises were scheduled to end any way today. the question is are they amassing to go someplace else? >> we'll keep you updated on secretary kerry's arrival as well. in the meantime, heather, you've got headlines? >> today is day two of the oscar pistorius trial and it's been dramatic. an interruption in the courtroom happening a short while ago -fplgt a prosecutor stopping pistorius's lawyer during cross-examination to announce the witness, his image was being broadcast on live television. this despite a court order that guaranteed privacy for the witnesses who requested it. that witness who was on the understand was pistorius' next door neighbor, the same one who testified yesterday that she heard bloodcurdling screams and gunshots the day of the killing. pistorius shot and killed his girlfriend last day at his vale
out of the loop on some of these decisions. it's not going a defense she is going to use. her plan is to stick with president obama, but it makes it hard for her to charter her own course as she heads out on this campaign. we have seen ian senator john mccain who you know is very supportive of her in the past and joked about her and said she was totally wrong about this. >> julie, this shows the long march to entering the race for hillary clinton, the longer this drags out, the more hits she is going to take. whatever issue of the day comes up, it's a link somehow to hillary clinton. >> absolutely. especially if it's something that happened on foreign policy when she was secretary of state. i mean, that red reset button moment we are going to see played over and over again. i actually am interested to hear from her on what she was thinking at that time and whether she thinks that was the right policy given what we have seen now. >> and gene robinson, there are going to be a lot of issues that she is going to be exposed on if she runs moving forward and a lot of people think she is

pistorius trial. here's a look inside the courtroom in south africa. today the defense is challenging a couple's testimony that they heard screams and gunshots coming from pistorius's home the night he shot his girlfriend. pistorius's next door neighbor broke down on the stand yesterday recalling the screams that she heard. >> the shots [crying] >> at one point pistorius -- you can see him as he puts his hands over his ears appearing to block out his testimony. he has pleaded not guilty. we'll keep watching this case. >>> at this hour officials are preparing for a more extensive investigation into that massive gas explosion that blew apart a condominium complex leaving one woman dead and seven others hurt. this happened in ewing, new jersey, after contractors responded to a power problem, hit a gas line. neighbors say the force from the blast felt like a bomb. >> it kind of blew me back like 10, 15 feet. it was just chaos outside. people were crying, nobody knew what was going on. >> look at that right there. this house is blown to bits. several of those homes were leveled. most of th
. and on foreign policy -- >> now backs the president a thousand%. >> the former defense secretary bob gates scorches biden in the book partly because biden was not about to cede control of foreign policy to bob gates. >> gates is a good guy, but he is republican. >> exactly. >> and biden's policy has been validated this week. we're pulling out of afghanistan because of the conflict. >> he said i want to go any terrorist route not a counter insurgency. i know this is nuanced, but the president ended up going with biden. >> i think he can be a more convincing populist than hillary clinton can, frankly. >> yeah. >> partly because he isn't a guy who has made a lot of money at it. he is a life-long politician. he has taken the train back and forth to wilmington the whole time. he is in it for right reasons and hasn't gotten rich off of politics as the clintons have. let's face it. >> you know what i like about the democratic party besides a lot of beliefs? i like they like to have fights and fun. they don't go whose turn it is and get in line. >> what really impressed me about glenn's terrific s
, but about which pieces of the constitution will apply down at this commission. these are defense lawyers trying to chip away at a death penalty case to say to the judge, if you hide a percentage of the evidence from the accused, if we, the defense lawyers, can't tell the accused some of the secret evidence, how can you then go about and ask for a death penalty? so, this is the pretrial hearings. it's hard. it isn't that kind of sexy murder trials that americans have become accustomed to watching on court tv. >> and carl, i'm not gonna argue with -- of course the families of the victims care, but i do think in terms of the breadth of coverage, the amount of discussion, these are people -- khalid sheikh mohammed, enemy combatants, number one, names familiar to many americans. if you ask i think john q. public where ksm's trial stands in terms of proceedings, i think very few people would be able to answer you on that on that note, the speed or lack thereof with which these men are seeing trial is staggering. the average wait time between a federal court around military commission, 1.5 year

on how much pressure should be put on russia. >> you could say it is time to put that missile defense shield back in the czech republic. >> too late. >> initial negotiations to make ukraine part of nato as well as other surrounding nations that want to be part of nato and russia saying you're getting too close to our borders, let's be honest. and the president of the united states would have to admit that. even secretary of state john kerry acquiesced to this notion. the mind set of set and reset a relationship has failed. the mind-set of putin, somebody hei] thought he for every day they stay in the crimea, add to their suspension. do something. >> and flood ukraine with economic aid and start pulling them away from russian natural gas and let you start selling our natural gatt at a price in which they can deal with that helps that economy stand on its own. >> one of the problems is if europe were to try to extract some pain from mr. putin, all those pipelines run across the ukraine -- i think there are about 10 or 11 of them, all putin would have to do is turn off the seven that go
't matter whether you are a cyclical name, whether you are a defensive name, all the major groups are up, industrials, health care, consumer staples are up along with consumer discretionary. we've got very unusual volume movers. epam is paced in pennsylvania. they sell software and tech systems in eastern europe and the ukraine, so they were down big yesterday but, look, they're up 17% today, just sort of rocketed back. i want to walk you over here, come here. they got a competitor, luxsoft and i'm behind post nine. take a look, up almost 20% right now. they do outsourcing of i.t. services, they compete against epam, most of the engineers are based in the a ukraine even though the company is headquartered in sitland, it was down yesterday, look at it, they are up 20% today. they had a conference call that say it may be beneficial because it may lower labor costs in the ukraine, so they do outsourcing of i.t. services and lower labor costs mean better prices for its customers and ubs some of the big financial firms over there. you can see this whole thing has gotten very interesting finan

and a russian defense official is discussing ukraine with nato members in brussels as well. so, in this swirl of diplomacy russia's and the west's end games are beginning to emerge. washington and berlin are pushing a plan that would include international observers to replace the russian or pro-russian forces in crimea direct talks between moscow and kiev and new elections in may. now, the russians on the other hand, want to see a return of the ousted ukrainian leader victor yanukovych, he would head a national unity government and new elections in december. so, there's a gulf between these two sides. clearly. and that will be whittled down perhaps over the next number of days, but at least, carl they are talking again. and, by the way, if that doesn't work, don't expect to see russian forces pulling back in crimea anytime soon that could become the new norm. back to you, carl. >> one question, you know, you talk about the presence of the pro-russian forces. is it the sense where you are that putin blinked as "usa today" puts it today or that he simply quit while he was
